Video of the Week: Elgar, Julian Lloyd Webber

Here is the third (slow) movement from Elgar's Cello Concerto played by Julian Lloyd Webber. (Conducted by Yehudi Menuhin.)  No, most of us won't play on a Stradavarius cello, but we can still aspire to a very sweet and gentle sound like this.

How much of his bow does he use?
